Production is set to begin next week in Vancouver.
“Status Update” is about a teenager (Lynch) who moves from his hometown after his parents split up and stumbles on a magical app that causes his social media updates to come true.
No sooner does he become a hot shot at his new high school than his power abruptly disappears and sends him back down to earth.
“Status Update,” which director Scott Speer will shoot from a sand will Jason Filardi, also features “Faking It” star Gregg Sulkin.
Offspring Entertainment’s Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot will produce with Brightlight’s Shawn Williamson and Voltage’s Dominic Rustam.
The executive producers include DNA’s Mason Xu and Fan Dong, Brightlight’s Arielle Boisvert and Voltage’s Jonathan Deckter.
